ATLANTA, Oct. 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — When Water & Wastes Digest recognized its top projects for 2016, Mueller Co. was well represented among the winners.
The Company’s Mueller® and Pratt® flow control products were used in at least two of the 10 projects recognized: San Francisco Public Utilities Commission’s Peninsula Pipelines Seismic Upgrade Project and North Dakota State Water Commission’s Dickinson Finished Water Pump Station.
The program honors water or wastewater projects that were in the design or construction phase over the past 18 months. The 10 winning projects were chosen by the W&WD editorial team and presented to the projects’ owners, designers and contractors during the annual WEFTEC conference in New Orleans, LA on September 26, 2016.
Mueller Co. supplied a number of resilient wedge gate valves for the Peninsula Pipelines Seismic Upgrade Project, which reinforced three transmission lines to help them withstand a seismic event along the San Andreas Fault. Included in this project was the first-ever 54-inch flanged resilient wedge gate valve shipped in the Company’s history.
North Dakota State Water Commission employed outside lever and weight swing check valves from Henry Pratt Company, a subsidiary of Mueller Co., for a new finished water pump station in Dickinson, North Dakota. The new pump station is needed to accommodate the growing water needs from an increased population in Dickinson and the Southwest Pipeline Project area.
“We congratulate both the San Francisco Public Utility Commission and the North Dakota State Water Commission on being recognized for improving their water infrastructure,” said Gregory S. Rogowski, president of Mueller Co. “They are proactively investing in their systems to ensure that their customers continue to have access to safe, clean drinking water. We are proud to have partnered with them on these projects.”
Mueller Co. is a subsidiary of Mueller Water Products, Inc. (NYSE:MWA).
